Gulf of Mexico, direct beach frontage. Take advantage of this singular opportunity to “live the dream”, of owning the perfect beach condo. A flawless combination of nature and design. This spacious, two bed, two bath, eighth floor retreat offers stunning views of the Gulf from it’s corner-covered balcony, which is set with tile on the diagonal. The entire unit has been artfully renovated, and professionally decorated in a muted monochromatic palette. Soft grays, muted greens, elegant stylings which are together stunning but also invite you to sit, put your feet up and share your beach memories with friends and family. Glistening 20 inch ceramic tile under feet, floor to ceiling windows with soft shades to filter the sun as it sets over the blue horizon of the Gulf. Gourmet kitchen which has been updated to open to the living room offers Bosch appliance, Italian style flat surface cabinetry, stainless steel commercial grade sink, glass tile backsplash, and natural stone countertops. Creative design elements have replaced the preexisting second dining area with an area of repose. Tranquil, new bathrooms, timeless looks of natural stone, gleaming glass, muted lighting, all set the stage for a serene ambiance while being durable enough to handle the sandy feet of beach goers as they return from a morning or evening walk on the beach or dip in the pool. The current homeowner is offering a “Turnkey Furniture Package” which is priced separately. The Sea Gate Club is a small community which enjoys beachfront luxury. Unlike any other building on the beach. As a new homeowner you benefit from the “pride in ownership” of the current and past owners in the community who have, over the past few years, totally renovated the building. Gone are the old concrete lanai railings. In their place are new, glass enclosed lanais. All exterior sliding doors and windows/replaced. Old building stucco stripped, and a new building skin added. Interior lobby and hallways refreshed, building wifi, and sprinklers update and so much more (all paid for). New air-conditioned storage areas are currently being added. The last item to be addressed is a concept to improve the community beachside heated pool.
Luxury community amenities include a new fitness center and community gathering room with caterer’s kitchen, library, pool, tennis court, beachside tiki huts and lounge chairs. The perfect location on Longboat is just across the street from Publix Grocery store and local shops. Close to St Armands Circle, Mote Marine, and a quick jaunt to the center of Sarasota. Welcome, enjoy, relax in your new move in ready, beachside dream.
